Why It’s So Hard To Lose Weight After 50.
If you’re like most men and women over 50, you’ve probably noticed how much easier it has become to gain weight than to lose it…
Every year, that number on the scale keeps creeping up a few notches, EVEN IF you’re saying “No” to Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and “Yes” to Yoga.
So what the heck is going on? Why do your jeans keep getting tighter?
Turns out, after you hit your 30’s, your metabolism begins to slow down1, which means your body is burning almost 200 less calories a day by the time you’re 50.
As If Your Slowing Metabolism Wasn’t Enough…
